For the moment, COVID-19 (Coronavirus) has limited the way we live our lives but not limited our ability to help others. Fundraising for TeamWalk has been extended until September 1, 2020 so we still have time to make a positive impact on the lives of those that have been affected by cancer.
TeamWalk on Your Terms
This gives you the freedom to host TeamWalk on YOUR turf and on YOUR time! Simply choose when and where you want to walk while following recommended social distancing protocols.
Most importantly, funds raised through TeamWalk stay right in the community — helping patients with wigs, prosthesis, transportation, medications, integrative therapies, and more.
Each spring since 2000, TeamWalk has brought together thousands of Merrimack Valley residents to walk the streets of downtown Lowell to raise money and support local cancer patients. Many of these patients are undergoing treatment at Lowell General Hospital's Cancer Center, which celebrated its own 20th anniversary in September 2018.
The event has come a long way since the first event, which started at Lowell General Hospital's main campus and had hundreds of walkers, not thousands.
Since its inception in 2000, TeamWalk for CancerCare has raised more than $13 million that has directly helped more than 32,000 patients. TeamWalk funds make a difference by paying for medications, nutritional supplements, wigs, and prostheses, support groups, skilled nursing visits, transportation, mini-grant, and supportive services to patients with all cancer types.
